government is going to do, like roads and bridges, and now we're in the middle after hurricane sandy like fema. and i think dean is a very interesting question that befuddles me because it started with jimmy carter, one of jimmy carter's, numbered bureaucratic innovations was fema. and reagan did was take it scarce and did we take it certificate didn't staff it with professional. then in 92 bush senior got burned with a response to hurricane andrew in florida. and clinton wrote in his autobiography, i made a mental note at the time, i'm not going to get elected because of my disaster management record but i could sure lose this job i'll make darshan going to hire a pro that will really with fema into shape, which he did. and then bush junior comes in the. he has a government agency after eight years, which everybody likes. no one is mad at fema in 2000. and then bush, for nobody is reason to me, besides forget it, let's start privatizing functions again. let's put and political cronies again. let's go back to the old way. and he got burned. and so obama comes back and put in a pro. people
that was hard hit by hurricane sandy and there were all sorts of questions, gwen, about whether enough people-- people who wanted to vote would be able to vote. we saw the terrible devastation there along the shoreline. but the results are in, at least as much as it takes for the associated press to make a call. >> ifill: i have read more amazing stories today about pregnant women who were on the way to the hospital who decided to vote. people who stood in the dark in lines in order to vote. in spite of what happened with that hurricane. >> woodruff: comparisons being made to hurricane katrina, not only new jersey and new york. we also want to say this brings the electoral college projected total at this point-- it's early in the evening-- to 79 electoral votes for president obama 82 electoral vote for governor romney. we know we need 270-- they need 270 in order to become president. >> ifill: of course we have to talk about new jersey because david and mark, chris christie, the governor of the new jersey, royaled the wate a littlebit this week by actually having kind things to say about pres
sandy, did that spress turnout? >> we'll see what the final numbers say at the end of the day. we know both the states and municipalities took every step they could to make sureprheir voters' votes would count. the the state of new jersey even allowed you to e-mail youra ballot in. all the states adapted. hopefully it didn't depress turnout put we haven't seen the final numbers. >> suarez: in 20 minutes there will be another round of closing. what will you and the campaig be looking at in particular? thee're taking a look state of virginia and florida, which look like a couple of the closest states on the map. those states could go late into the night. there's no question there are still folks voting in line in south florida who have been there for a while. so i think that will take time to close out. new hampshire, voting continues for a little while more. and then i assumee allize will rn to ohio and the midwest. >> suarez: ben lebolt from the obama campaign. thank you. >> ifill: we can tell you you the associated press projected a winner in ree states, kentucky, vermont, and virgini
number that was interesting to me. hurricane sandy, fully 42% of those responding to this first round in the exit polling said it was important, it was a reason, one of the reasons for their vote. that's more than one might have thought hurricane sandy didn't effect 42% of the country. those people are going by and large for obama pretty big. the question then arises, okay, well how many people were for him anyway? we don't know. it's sort of interesting. what it tells us, we can't tell. exit polls can only tell you so much. it's interesting. >> megyn: we have been talking about how these exit polls are not necessarily to be trusted entirely. it would be helpful if we explain that a little bit. brit, you were on the air back in 2004 when we got information in and back then they were saying that john kerry was way ahead, he was way ahead. >> brit: he was winning virginia and all these places. people are, we had the meeting with our decision team which i can thought then and think now is the best in the business. they were looking over the exit poll data and our pollster then said the u

winner tonight. it was devastated, as you know, by that superstorm sandy and still awaiting word how many people in the storm zone could actually show up. but we are ready to project that the winner tonight in new jersey is president obama, george. >> so we still see the north is going to president obama, the south is going to governor romney. so far just about everything as expected right now. see the states filled in that have been called already but we'll keep our eye all night long on these big battlegrounds where the campaigns have invested so much time and energy and money. the big states that are going to tip the balance tonight, the vote continues to come in. i want to go to ohio. you see it on the map right now if we can zone in on the board. we see about 20% of the vote has now come in ohio. president obama has 59% of that so far. governor romney, 40% and jon karl, i want to go to you. so much of that lead is based on the early vote that was made before today. >> yeah, that's exactly right and, remember, i said at this time exactly four years ago, obama had a 33-point lead over

then is, was this about the president's performance in dealing with hurricane sandy. there was a lot of speculation how this may have changed the race. governor romney was making a pitch saying i am bipartisan guy that can get things done. the storm came along, president was able to show that he could be effective and how in working with republican governor of new jersey will have to do a little more reporting but for that 9% that may have played a little bit of a role. scott john, thank you. norah, do you think sandy was a helpful octor surprise for the president? >> it appears based on some of the data that it may have been. once number of republicans hear that they're going to be angry at new jersey governor chris christie who some felt helped the president. other people said, these guys were doing their job for a lot of people who were really hurting, who lost their homes, lost their electricity for many people who died as a result of hurricane sandy. chris christie was effusive in his praise of the president. one point even praising the president for calling him and putting bru
like the hurricane sandy. but one thing that is important to point out is is we're going to see them in waves tonight. some of the things that they tell us early, we've got an early look that basically suggests that the economy, of course, is what drove people to the polls. it doesn't actually tell you who won. you can infer some of the things, the characteristics that are driving people to show up. >> brown: tell us a little bit more because we've got some of the early results. that first one backs up what we just heard from mark, right? it's still the economy. >> exactly. another thing that backs up what david and mark were just talking about is who is in more touch with people like you. 52% said that was president obama. chose obama. they were showing up at the polls. 44% chose governor romney in that sense. that could go to the advertising campaign that the president's team had really tried to say that mitt romney is not like you. i am more in touch with the middle tax. that goes to the tax increase issue which also showed up in the exit polls that six in 10 voters said taxes sho
hurricane sandy hit the northeast. stronghold for democrats that appeared destined to depress turn out for the president in some of his largest states. they said, we're just not thinking about the popular vote right now we're only focused on our battleground states. but something they're going to have to think about a lot more if these totals hold. >> pelley: thank you very much. let's switch over to jan crawford at romney headquarters in boston. certainly looking like a very different scene in boston, jan? >> reporter: it has been for the past couple hours there really has not been any good news for this crowd tonight. of course very quiet as you can imagine in this room. the questions now, of course, going to begin for the romney cam main what happened, why, for example didn't respond to some of the negative attacks over the summer allowing obama campaign to define him, particularly some of those battleground states with his work at bank capital. positions on auto industry bail out that really hurt him. people here believe, we're raising questions about that in recent weeks. when w
going. then came hurricane sandy that took the focus off romney in the final week of the campaign. romney had expected to win. earlier in the day, he told reporters he had written only one speech, a victory speech. >> it's about 1,118 words, and i'm sure it will change before i'm finished because i haven't passed it around to my family and friends and advisers to get their reactions. >> reporter: but in the end, he delivered a concession speech lasting just five minutes. >> i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader. and so, ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america! >> reporter: now, you could really see the sadness on romney as he gave that speech last night. it was a hard-fought campaign, and as he said, he didn't leave anything on the table, but there's also something more. not only was this the end of the campaign for romney, but it's really the end of his political life. his wife, ann, said last night that he will not
sovereignty or national interests. the reason superstorm sandy cause such damage in the northeast of the united states was not exclusively related to environmental policies and actions taken in the united states of america. .. >> if i can add one more thing, remember the beginning of the united states of america. economy of the this southern states in the northern states is very different. they were very different from each other. even today, the economy is very different. we found a way to deal with that and the regulators are the same is true in europe and china and india. same is the same is true and brazil. this country deals with gaps between the rich and poor, agriculture, and earthen industrialize an evolving in much the same way that we're going to have to on the global stage for a the problem has been solved and can be solved. >> host: good afternoon, we have a caller from new york city. >> caller: hello, i'm so happy you're taking my call. my question is this fiscal cliff that we are approaching. if president obama allows it to happen, what kind of catastrophe are you ta
they will never know that right. when we filed the case, christine sandy, the lead plaintiffs in that case, they were just entering high school. they're going to graduate in june. their moms still are not married, so we have to tell this human story. as often as possible because that is what america cares about. and we have to be smart and strategic about how we get these victories and how we get them as fast as we can. but always remembering why we fight. i can't be more eloquent than you just were. >> you are talked about the coalition before the work that was done in this election. how do you see our role as lgbt people in working on other issues and where do you see that play out? those benefits that don't always get that. >> you are absolutely right or good something that patrick was talking about there. it's very important and if you look at the fiscal cliff we are all talking about, sequestration and you look at, if we don't come to a sensible resolution here, all people including lgbt people, right, it's often silly when we have these discussions. lgbt people aren't part of the com
